(KSNV)  Jerad Miller had three "contacts" with police before Sunday's deadly shooting of officers Alyn Beck and Igor Saldo according to information released Wednesday by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

The couple's first contact with local law enforcement occurred in February when Miller was stopped in Boulder City after law enforcement officials learned that he had made "threatening remarks" to employees at the Indiana Department of Motor Vehicles, which had suspended his driver's license.

"The suspect in this case was very angry and very frustrated ... was not able to get any answers as to why his license was suspended," Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said. "At that point our detectives made a determination that probable cause did not warrant an arrest. There was no anti-government or anti-police descriptions described at that point. That case was then closed."
